No matter what your mood after the Presidential election, the Sedona real estate market has something to lift your spirits and be thankful for. Both residential and vacant land sales are up in terms of unit sales but the Sedona and VOC zip codes are behaving somewhat differently, so let’s look at them individually.

They say it’s a scary time of year. Ghosts, goblins, walking skeletons and walking dead…even Hill and Don. We always have our ‘hallowed evening’ during the Scorpio time of year, as well as ‘all souls days.’
Scorpio rules the veil between life and death, as life is actually eternal; dark and light; transformation, as in shedding an old skin like a snake that already has a new skin ready to go; and rising like the phoenix from the ashes.
Experience amazing plein air painting at some of Sedona’s most beautiful locations.
Sedona Arts Center’s annual Plein Air Festival is in full swing through October 22 with dozens of artists exploring our community creating, painting, and making new art! Three Festival Paint-outs, free and open to the public, will feature 30 notable American artists—creating unique pictures live and on the spot. The public is invited to L’Auberge de Sedona, Seven Canyons Resort, and Uptown Sedona to meet world-class artists and enjoy new painting as it is being created. At the end of each Paint-out event, the artists will frame and present the works for sale on the easels they used to paint. Each event features awards provided by Gamblin Oils and Guerrilla Painter. Don’t miss these three wonderful opportunities to connect with Sedona’s growing plein air identity.
My friends, have these last months been full of intensity, overwhelming waves of emotion, and such? We have three fate-changing eclipses to thank. For some it was a pinnacle of love and joy like no other time, or a big weight lifted.
If otherwise, frankly, put your arms around yourself, vigorously rub and pat your heart to soothe your soul, then repeat after me, “I love myself, forgive myself and others, and surrender to God,’ having faith that by the end of a week, you will likely see your double rainbow.
Some deal with the effects of literal hurricane force winds, and loss, others face medical realities, or are at the end of their emotional rope with other deep, dark rumblings. Through the tunnel there is always the light, and it shows up sooner when we remember it is there. Ask how is ‘this’ here to help my soul remember the truth and return to faith that all is always okay, as everything has a reason.

Decades ago, the book Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984) was a popular fictional tale set in the far future of 1984. By 1984 we were cautioned, we could be watched by Big Brother, but hoped it wouldn’t be a reality, and doubted it, right?
In the mid 90s I began working in television in California, and was sent across country to learn about current and soon-to-be more updated information gathering. I was shocked to learn that many average television viewers were already being watched, and it would become even more prevalent and gather more information on many of us, than we knew and would likely approve.
Here we are at the last months of 2016 and every action and word we say can be gathered by complete strangers and put on view for all to see. Watch yourself.
